tumblr-full-backup

Export the post and images from your tumblr blog, or post and images from your liked posts in Tumblr. Heavily inspired by, mmmmm, ripped off from tumblr-photo-export

Dependencies

Setup

  1. Clone the repo:

    $ git clone git@github.com:zigotica/tumblr-full-backup.git
    

    If you do not use Git, you can simply download the project in .zip format

  2. (Optionally) modify defaults at export.rb file: public_dir, liked_dir, image_subdir, download_num, limit

  3. Register a new app, this will allow you to fetch data from Tumblr programmatically: https://www.tumblr.com/oauth/register

  4. Copy the OAuth Consumer Key of the app, you will need it later.

  5. (Optionally) Add two keys to your bash/zsh:

    export TUMBLR_USERNAME="MY_FANTASTIC_TUMBLR_USERNAME"  
    export TUMBLR_CONSUMER_KEY="MY_DAUNTING_OAUTH_CONSUMER_KEY"  
    

Download posts, including images

  1. Go to the app directory and run [optional if performed step 5]:

    ruby export.rb posts [TUMBLR_USERNAME TUMBLR_CONSUMER_KEY]
    
  2. Posts and images from your Tumblr blog will be downloaded to the public_dir folder.

    ruby export.rb likes [TUMBLR_USERNAME TUMBLR_CONSUMER_KEY]
    
  3. Posts and images from posts you liked will be downloaded to the liked_dir folder.
